Sheffield United took another giant step towards European competitions qualification when centre-back John Egan(90+3') rose highest to nod in teammate Oliver Norwood's corner kick in stoppage time to earn a 1 nil victory at Bramall Lane.
With the UEFA Champions League 1st slot secured by league champion Liverpool and Manchester City ban from the competition(ban appealed), the remaining 3 slots are still up for grabs and vie for between 3rd place team Chelsea and mathematically down to the 10th place team Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blades as Sheffield United is fondly called started their league return on a poor note, earning just a single point in 3 matches and also failed to advance to the Semis of the FA Cup. However, United seems to be picking up the pieces having remarkably defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 and then earned a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Burnley 3 days later, Sheffield United sure had their blade well whetted for Wolves' visit.
Wolverhampton kicked off the Premier League return with an incredible 3-match winning run to keep their European football dream alive, however, an unexpected 0-2 home loss to Arsenal woke them to the realization that European qualification won't be as easy as apple-pie as first thought. So, Wolves, hungry and needed to get back on the hunt, found themselves faced with The Blades who equally have European qualification ambition, the result was imminent and a back-to-back defeat.
Sheffield United's Victory has now moved them up to 7th on the log table with 51 points, 8 points behind 4th place Leicester, a touching distance of European qualification of either UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League. With 12 points from remaining 4 matches still to compete for, it's a race to the wire for United.
